In 1996, Congress passed the Dickey Amendment which effectively BANNED the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from conducting public health research on gun violence.

Solving our NATIONAL EPIDEMIC of gun injuries and deaths requires the same type of scientific research that helped us save half a million lives from road traffic crashes without banning cars.

The CDC collects data on many kinds of violence, including child abuse, youth violence, suicides and sexual assaults, but it doesn’t collect data on gun violence for the sole reason that the NRA and their lackeys in Congress are AFRAID of the results.

Repealing this amendment is a no-brainer! But we won’t get Congress’s full attention unless every single person reading this takes IMMEDIATE action.
